Well! What a fantastic day we had at the zoo on Monday. We were so lucky with the weather too.
When we arrived at the zoo, Pippa the zookeeper spoke to us all about how we keep safe at the zoo. She reminded us not to run, not to touch the animals, and to stay with our adults.
We saw lots of interesting animals at the zoo and learnt about the enviornments they live in in the wild and the food that they eat. Mrs Bawden's favourite was the zebra.
We thought it was very funny that the pig had a ball to play with and that the peacock wanted to share our packed lunches.
A big thank you to the children for their fantastic behaviour that day and to the adults that came along to help.
Back at school we have been taking part in lots of zoo related activities.
On Tuesday we wrote some lovely recounts about our trip to the zoo and talked about our favourite parts of the day.
On Wednesday we used adjectives to speak in clear and complete sentences, describing the photographs that were taken that day. We said things such as, 'The black and white zebra is eating the grass.'
During Listen, Look and Learn time we have been using the small world zoo to retell the events of our trip, made a zoo puzzle, measured out animal food and role played in the vets. We have also been investigating the iPads.
Just a reminder that Reception class will be swimming on Friday 24th May. Please make sure that your child has their swimming bag with costume and towel at school.
Class photos will be taken on Tuesday 21st May. Please make sure your child has their yellow school jumper.
